**Ok, I stole this picture and idea off of my friend Janet's blog, sorry but I couldn't resist.
I had to let all of you know who are planning to visit us what you will encounter. For some strange reason Italians think that this is a more sanitary way to use a public bathroom. In most stores, offices and general areas you will find a normal American-style toilet but in restaurants and bars, you find a hole in the ground. Now, this may seem like a good idea, but if you are a woman and you have been drinking (which you normally do --AT A BAR!) this becomes somewhat difficult. (espically if you are wearing heels and tight jeans!) Please notice that there are no handle bars or or anything to help you with this situation. Just your own will to be strong, squat like you are working out and not to fall over in the disgustingness that is all over the floor. I don't want to scare anyone away from reading my future blogs by getting too graphic, but I'm sure that you get the picture. I'm positive that a MAN invented this novel idea to torture women and to trick us by labeling it as sanitary. Believe me, this is anything but SANITARY!!!
